Kelly's Quilt

 I had been collecting grey and teal/aqua fabrics for some time with an idea to make a quilt for my daughter in law Kelly. Aqua is her most favorite color and when I found a simple but effective pattern I decided it would be perfect.


It was quite fun making this quilt. I quilted it on my trusty Bernina 710.

10"squares with a random cut vertically, then horizontally.

Initially I intended making this for their caravan, but I think Kelly decided it was too good for that, and it went straight on their bed.


Sorry the colors dont show up the best, but I hope you get an overall idea of the quilt looks like. The squares and strips that look black, are in fact a dark grey.

Thanks for dropping by
